How Much Is Gynecomastia Removal Surgery?


I started testosterone replacement therapy at age 31 after being diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism. Researching hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with testosterone was difficult because all of the info was for women or bodybuilders. So I decided to create a site for average guys looking into TRT.

    Most men on testosterone replacement should be on arimidex or another estrogen blocker.
    It really serves 2 purposes, it keeps the free testosterone high as it decreases the SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) and prevents gynecomastia. This is a problem better to prevent than have surgery. The typical dose of arimidex is 1 mg twice a week but it can vary

    Hi TRT man,

    I’ve been at this TRT for 11 years now.  However, I’ve had gyneomastia for 50+ years. The TRT made no difference at all. You will also find that all sorts of things from TRT to opioids, lavender oil in soaps, a ton of different drugs and all sorts of things can influence gynecomastia.  I have to say having a pair of DD breasts during junior high was hell on earth.  By this time, life threatening diseases, becoming a nudist and getting rid of body-shame and many experiences have quite defused the psychological pain.  I’m on a handfull of medications most all of which could cause breast growth but haven’t changed a thing.  I’m a lousy surgical candidate and at this point would have other procedures first becasue they matter more to me.  At this point my chest is a Rorschach test for other people and if they don’t like it that is their problem.  It has become a non-issue for me.  Almost half of men face such with most either starting at puberty or after age 50 as testosterone levels fall with age related decreasing serum b12 levels.
